“Food creative”.

That’s the phrase I first learned from this book, as in “London fashion publicist turned Paris-based food creative,”  which is how Rachel Khoo describes herself.

For a day or two, I walked around thinking to myself, “That’s what I am!  a food creative!”  In other words:  High job satisfaction, low hourly wage.

As for the book, an offering in the category I dub “Easy French,” it’s adorable.  It brims with chic.  Does it cook well?  Basically, yes.   You have to read a little in between the lines, the portions are small, and so is the type.  But overall, it’s a very appealing package.
